SACRAMENTO, CA -- The California Senate on May 29 approved a bill that would require labels on sugary drinks warning that the substance contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay. The legislation moves on to the state Assembly before Gov.Jerry Brown can sign it into law.

The Senate Appropriations Committee suspended SB 1000 on April 28 for further review of the costs of enforcing it, estimated at $390,000. The state Senate Committee on Health had passed the bill on April 10.

Sen. Bill Monning (D-Carmel) who introduced the measure, said when the bill was suspended that he would work to reduce the costs of enforcing the measure before reintroducing it for another vote later this spring. | SEE STORY

Monning has argued that the legislation would save the state millions in healthcare costs related to obesity and diabetes. Last year, the senator backed an unsuccessful measure that would have taxed soft drinks.
